2008 escape hybrid won't start when you turn the


I am not familiar with hybrids, but i think when you start, it's starting with the battery, so I think you have a bad connection, check and clean the battery terminals.

Stoped runing andwill not start


If it stopped in a second, the cause is electrical problem. If it stopped more gradually, over several seconds, it is usually fuel related. If you put the key in the ignition and turn it to run, not start, are there lights on the dashboard panel? If you turn the key to the start position, does the engine rotate? Sometimes I have to turn the key to start position several times before it works and the engine rotates.

I have a 1990 Ford E-350 5.7L that cranks but when you press on the accelerator, It cuts off. I have had the external fuel pump changed as well the fuel filter. The ECM elay has also been replaced.


A common problem is the crank sensor fails or gets out of adjustment. This device senses engine rotation and when it fails to send pulses the engine is assumed to be NOT rotating. When engine rotation ceases for a few seconds, the fuel pump is turned off. This is a safety feature to prevent fuel being pumped if vehicle is in wreck or whatever. The fuel pump is cycled on a few seconds when starting so that engine can start and then rotation is sensed and pump is allowed to continue.

Starts then dies & won't restart


check fuel pressure, should be 40 psi.
try 2 things

spray starting fluid in air intake to see if it will stay running. It's fue then.

Try turning key to on nd wait 5 seconds for system to build pressure and pump to shut off. Turn key off, wait for relay clcik noise or 10 seconds. then turn key to ON again and wait 5 seconds to build pressure again. Then start engine. If it starts better, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator on the fuel rail (unlikely).

I have a 2000 323i. The battery appears to be strong enough, but it won't turn over. Can you tell me if there is a fuse that maybe affecting this problem?


Have you attempted to jump start your car with either another vehicle or with a strong battery charger? If so, what were the results?

Do you hear clicking when you try to start it? If not, then clean your battery cables and then reattach and try again. If there is clicking, then you need to determine if the problem is in your starting circuit or the engine itself. So you will need to take off the serpentine belt and using a large socket wrench you need to try to turn the engine (clockwise only). If it will rotate, the problem is in your starting or charging circuits. If it won't rotate by hand then the problem is in your engine.

1998 Ford Windstar Minivan: 1. I sometimes get an extended crank when trying to start engine after I've made a short trip. 2. My interior lights won't go out after I turn the engine off, so I...


YOU MAY HAVE A BAD DOOR AJAR SWITCH. HOWEVER, YO HAVE A TIMER THAT SHUTS OFF THE INTERIOR LIGHTS AFTER 300 MINUTES. IT'S CALLED A BATTERY SAVER FEATURE. TEST IT OUT.

THE EXTENDED CRANK MAY BE A CHECK VALVE IN THE FUEL PUMP IN THE TANK, ALLOWING PRESSURE TO DROP WHEN YOU TURN THE ENGINE OFF.
OR A BAD FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR ON THE ENGIEN FUEL RAIL.

TRY THIS TEST, TURN KEY TO "ON" POSITION, WAIT 5 SECONDS, SHUT OFF KEY FOR 30 SECONDS. TURN KEY ON, WAIT 5 SECONDS, THEN START ENGINE. IF IT STARTS RIGHT UP, YOU ARE LOSING FUEL PRESSURE WITH ENGINE OFF.

THIS BUILDS UP PRESSURE IF IT DROPPED DURING SHUT DOWN.
REPORT TEST RESULTS.

PLEAE RATE, THANKS

go to the back of the truck near the gas tank and listen for the pump to run while some one turns the key to the on position not Start but on. If you do not hear the pump it is probubly bad.
